hi friends! before signing off for the weekend i wanted to share a super quick and easy project with you. a simple golden tray! i have always loved keeping a tray in my kitchen for all my cooking essentials: salt & pepper, honey, measuring spoons and a container for compost. i was inspired to paint the tray gold to match the gold tipped spoon on my new porcelain salt cellar from honeycomb studio. i think they make a beautiful pair!
this tray from ikea was exactly what i was looking for in regards to size, but i couldn’t get over the loud polka dot pattern. nothing a quick paint job couldn’t fix! i ended up loving the soft white color underneath and bold brown edge, so i carefully taped around the edges to preserve them both.
step 1: find your perfect tray. ikea offers several sizes, all perfect for different spots in your kitchen!
step 2: tape along the edges, preserving the brown edge (if you like).
step 3: with light and even strokes, spray paint the top. my all time favorite gold spray paint is brilliant gold by design master. it’s brilliant, smooth and soft.
